Kyle has had an okay day...had some issues with his oxygen saturation levels dropping so the medical team decided some chest x-ray
s were in order. They did show he has a bottom right lung lobe that has partially collapsed, but this has happened before and they will now treat the respiratory issues more aggressively to try and break up the mucus that is in that lung. He's not tolerating the feedings either and has asked to have the drip stopped. It makes him very nauseous and is still getting sick from the feedings.

They don't want to transfer him back to ICU, so they will work wtih the PICU staff over at the UVA Medical Center to develop a more aggressive treatment plan. The rest of this afternoon, they will try to keep him comfortable and resting quietly.

More tomorrow!
